Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The main objective of the course is to teach students how to design and develop components of the operator environment in the software for supervisory control and data acquisition - SCADA / HMI development, creating algorithms for the simulation in a scripting language according to the specific problems and implement the specific tasks in the runtime environment program.

Teaching methods

Project work


The course is focused into supervisory control and data acquisition, students learn how to develop, configure and test applications created with software for visualization, data acquisition and monitoring. The concept of supervisory control for technological processes, communication with production and administration systems, techniques for industrial automation introduced to operator screens based on Human Machine Interface and its development tools are taught. Professional program packages for SCADA/HMI are available for students in order to practice the application development, dynamic data exchange with I/O equipment and clients of Internet/Intranet.
